Welcome to Joey's week with cards from Joey's Legendary Collection and some other character cards. We look at a new card today, new to the game anyway, something we saw Joey use in the Orichalcos arc, in Blue Flame Swordsman. This is a Level 4, Warrior Monster, Fire attributed, with 1800 attack and 1600 defense. Blue Flame Swordsman can't do a whole lot, however. He can, once a turn, during either player's Battle Phase, target a Warrior you control to add 600 attack to...by subtracting 600 attack from himself. He can then when removed from the Field, by Battle or card effect, remove himself from the Graveyard, to Special Summon a Fire, Warrior type Monster from your Graveyard. That's what kills the card honestly. If it were either/or, you'd have playability in various Decks.

For some reason this week, we are going to be looking at mostly Joey cards… (plus 1 Mai card). First of is one of the new cards from Legendary Collection 4: Joey’s World; Blue Flame Swordsman. Annoyingly for anime fans, Blue Flame Swordsman effect has been altered in the hopes of making him more playability, but has it worked?

First of is the effect that no-one remembers, in the anime Blue Flame Swordsman could reduce its own ATK and increase another monster’s ATK by the same amount. This effect has been kept largely intact but now there is a specific amount of 600 meaning it can be only used 3 times and it only applies to Warriors but that isn’t too bad. The effect is also a quick effect which is a good thing, though this effect does make this card an obvious target.

But in a way that is the point so you can activate its second effect which is also one of the most controversial parts of this card, in the anime when it was destroyed it allowed Joey to get a Flame Swordsman form his (extra) deck or graveyard. The real life card doesn’t do that; instead you banish this card (to stop any possible loops) and you can special summon 1 FIRE/Warrior from your graveyard and you would be surprised to see there are actually quite a few FIRE/Warriors including Command Knight, Crimson Blader, pretty much all of the "Battlin' Boxer" archetype and if you happen to have one in your graveyard, Flame Swordsman.

Okay so the chance to special summon a monster from your Extra Deck is gone, but the effect does make it a bit more playable and it is good to finally have this card realized in some form.

Overall, a solid card with solid stats and it might see some play in "Battlin' Boxer" decks and if not it will see play in Joey Character Decks.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Hey guys today we are going to be doing Blue Flame Swordsman a new release to the TCG and a pretty good card. If you decrease its attack by 600 another warrior monster gains that same amount. Now that effect isn't really that good, but when we look at the second it really shines. When it's destroyed by an opponents card effect. You can target one Fire Warrior monster in your grave, banish this card, the special summon him. Now the only deck that comes to mind for this card are Battlin' Boxers, but this card can potentially benefit an archetype or monster that will come out in the future.....

Trad: 1/5
Adv: 2/5
